10G ports on ASA5585-S10C10XK9


I'am not able to figure out the datascheet of the above ASA.

I should put on two 10G SFP +

Is there any module I have to add in order to manage that, or is alredy covered by the bundle ?

Let me Know, is very stratecic for me having knowledge about that

Re: 10G ports on ASA5585-S10C10XK9


I'd wait for a Cisco employee answer or someone that has sure knowledge.

We do have 5x ASA 5585-X with SSP20

ASA 5585 has the following ports

- 2 Management interfaces

- 8 GigabitEthernet

- 2 SFP slots

(Im not sure if the other SSPs have maybe more SFP slots?)

To my understanding to get more SFP slots you need another SSP or the IPS module. Doesnt seem to be any module just to provide additional SFP slots which kinda makes things inconvenient sometimes.

To be able to use the 2 SFP slots to provide 10G connection, you need to get license for that. By default they are 1G only.

Then again it could be its already included in the bundle?

As I said I cant give you a specific answer but our ASA 5585-X models with SSP-20 didnt come with the ability to use 10G straight away. Maybe thats included with SSP-40 and SSP-60

In our ASA for example the "show version" command shows the following

Licensed features for this platform:

10GE I/O                          : Disabled       perpetual
